Brent’s Thankful For…

AHumanAlmost Human
Fringe may be dead and buried, but showrunner J.H. Wyman wasted no time getting back on the broadcasting horse with his new robo-buddy-cop series Almost Human. On the surface these two shows have little in common aside from their procedural nature and sci-fi leanings, but the two are similar in the way they approach the well-worn tropes of a cop drama and use speculative fiction to turn them on their head. We’re only three episodes into our relationship with Almost Human, and I don’t want to jump the gun, but guys, this could be the one. There’s a grim future, mismatched partners who push each other, sex ‘bots, mysterious criminal networks, and action. What else can you ask for? This year we’re definitely thankful that there’s good, gritty sci-fi on TV, and that we get to see Karl Urban (Dredd) on a weekly basis.

fb share tweet share

ghostbustersFor good or ill, it’s starting to look like Ghostbusters 3 might actually happen. Why, no one is particularly sure, but if the last Indiana Jones movie can actually happen, then nothing is sacred. The other day the news broke that Sony wants to cast young stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in the film, and now rumors are floating around that Ghostbusters 3 will start filming in Cleveland sometime in the spring of next year.

According to WKYC, an NBC of affiliate out of the most populous city in Ohio, the film, which always seems to “just about” to finally come together, will start rolling in the spring. Here’s exactly what they said:

More movie projects are on the way. One being the sequel to “Ghostbusters” as Sony has penciled in spring 2014 date to start shooting the third installment here in Cleveland.

Ghostbusters 3 Might Recruit Emma Stone And Jonah Hill

Stone and HillIt seems like Ghostbusters 3 is always close to starting production, and then something happens to prevent the film from finding the light of day. While it appears that Dan Aykroyd is trying everything in his power to get the project off the ground, recent rumors suggest that it’s closer than it ever has been to getting a green light from Sony.

According to SchmoesKnow.com, Sony is looking to cast Emma Stone and Jonah Hill for the third installment in the Ghostbusters film series. They will allegedly play characters named Anna and Jeremy. Dare we hope that Dan Aykroyd might finally get Ghostbusters 3 into theaters?

Emma Stone and Jonah Hill appeared together in the buddy comedy Superbad in 2008. Since then, their careers have taken off in Hollywood, with Hill being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in the film Moneyball, while Emma Stone has a solid gig as Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man film series. Jonah Hill would be awesome in a new Ghostbusters film, and hopefully he’ll bring his buddies James Franco, Seth Rogen, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, and Michael Cera along with him. As for Emma Stone, she’s wonderful and has chemistry with virtually anyone playing opposite her, even Jonah Hill and Jesse Eisenberg.

Rick Moranis On Spaceballs And Ghostbusters Sequels

fb share tweet share

Lord Dark HelmetAfter a stint on Canadian sketch comedy TV show SCTV (Second City Television), actor Rick Moranis spent the 1980s appearing in iconic science fiction comedies such as Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, and the musical Little Shop of Horrors. He has since taken a very long hiatus from acting to raise his children after the death of his wife Ann in 1991.

Moranis recently released a new comedy record called My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs, and he is thinking about returning to the big screen. In an interview with Heeb Magazine, Rick Moranis talks about his ideas for a sequel to Mel Brooks’ cult hit Spaceballs, and whether Dan Aykroyd has approached him to reprise his role as Louis Tully in Ghostbusters 3.

Although Spaceballs wasn’t a big box office success in 1987, the Mel Brooks comedy gained cult status on home video. It even got to the point that MGM wanted to make an actual sequel, Spaceballs II: The Search for More Money. Moranis explains:

Mel wanted to do a sequel after it became a cult video hit. It wasn’t a box office hit. It was a cult video hit, and MGM wanted to do a sequel. And my idea for it was Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II. And I was unable to make a deal with Mel. I couldn’t make a deal.

Dan Aykroyd Is Back With More Hypothetical Ghostbusters 3 Info

fb share tweet share

GB3Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters! But they’re probably still waiting for a call on a rotary dial phone, since it feels like that long since rumors about Ghostbusters 3 started hitting the Internet. Dan Aykroyd believes in a bunch of weird shit, and the future existence of this long-awaited sequel is not the least of it.

He recently appeared on Larry King Live to promote other things, but Larry King — poor, beyond all realms of pop culture Larry King — posited the requisite question about the sequel, and Aykroyd gave his prepared speech, which covered the points below:

It’s based upon new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young people – the young men and women at Columbia University…Basically, there’s research being done that I can say that the world or the dimension that we live in – our four planes of existence: length, height, width and time – become threatened by some of the research that’s being done. And Ghostbusters – new Ghostbusters – have to come and solve the problem.

This is astounding…ly like everything we already know about the film. Not necessarily all the planes of existence involved, but at least we know now that new Ghostbusters are getting the job. Aykroyd also promised King a job, saying he can “comment on what’s happening in Manhattan up there at Morningside Heights. It’s going to be quite a spectacular scene once the stuff starts to break.” That sounds delightfully vague, but still gets a little bit of excitement brewing.

Dan Aykroyd Says Ghostbusters 3 Could Start Shooting As Soon As Early 2014

GhostbustersCan we all give Dan Aykroyd an “A” for effort? The last time we heard any developments about Ghostbusters 3, Sony had put the film on hiatus because of the “enormous financial troubles” the movie studio have been experiencing as of late. It hasn’t seemed to shake Dan Aykroyd, who still believes Ghostbusters 3 will be a reality one day. The big question is, does anyone else share his enthusiasm?

In an interview with ABC News, Dan Aykroyd talks about the phantom Ghostbusters project, and says the new film will start shooting early next year. Apparently, there are new writers working on the script, and they’re taking a new scientific approach to the new material. Aykroyd says:

I feel re-encouraged, reinvigorated by the pages that I have seen. I know that we’re expecting half of the screenplay to be completed very soon. It should be into production by the fall and be shooting by the new year. I won’t say anything, it’s very exciting. The Higgs boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible come through.
